on the crisis in syria. president obama is expected to speak in a few minutes on syria. we will bring you his comments when those happen. meanwhile, within the past hour, secretary of state john kerry laid out the evidence the white house believes proves the assad regime was, in fact, behind the chemical attack that killed over 1,000 people, including 426 children. >> we know the syrian regime elements were told to prepare for the attack by putting on gas masks and taking precautions associated with chemical weapons. we know that these were specific instructions. we know where the rockets were launched from and at what time. we know where they landed and when. we know rockets came only from regime-controlled areas and went only to opposition-controlled or contested neighborhoods. >> kerry's statement came after a national security council meeting led by president obama at the white house a short time ago. the white house released the intelligence report on last week's chemical weapons attack using the report the white house hopes to make the case for military intervention at a time when publi
that there is one democrat who will not be talking about this issue and that is barack obama. and the left -- this is clearly a media dump. this was clearly an opponent, someone who sees ted cruz as a threat that delivered this information and has stirred it up behind the scenes. i think most people in politics recognize what this is. i enjoy the fact that people out there are highlighting that the republican party is a big tent. we have people from all walks of life who are stepping up to the plate with bold ideas and ted cruz is one of them. >> let's go to some of the things that have been said about the birther issue from the democratic side for those that said why didn't obama produce his birth certificate when he was asked. this is in part how some of the left reacted. >> how can he go from flat earth, i don't believe in evolution to -- >> why are you putting those words in his mouth? he never said he doesn't believe in evolution. those are your words, chris. >> that's how you would like to paint him to be. >> it wasn't an issue in the primary. >> look, let's look -- >> come on. what

time. >>> will we or won't we? after secretary of state john kerry talks tough president obama walked things back today. is the u.s. attack on syria coming sooner, later, or not at all? the markets meanwhile are clearly rooting for no attack. any time kerry or president obama made hawkish comments stocks fell. when they were more dovish stocks rallied back. stocks finished on another down note. considering all we've been through this summer, the markets have been pretty resilient. meanwhile another conflict in washington gearing up. the fight over debt ceiling, government shutdown, sequester, taxes all that continues. meetings between the gang offing eight and white house negotiators broke down. all that and more coming up on "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone i'm larry kudlow. this is the cut low report. you heard my interpretation of today's speeches. john kerry talked tough in a stroke and brilliant speech. president obama on the other hand seemed to walk it back. let's go cnbc john harwood. he's live in washington for us this evening. first of all,
an international norm, any decision by president obama to bomb syria will kill people. it will kill the guys working the night shift, people just doing their jobs to put food on their family tables. daddy who went to work that morning will not be coming home because of what this president decides to do. the assad family will be okay, of course. the designers of that vogue magazine spread won't be anguished by this sight of this thoroughly western family lying on the floor. no. the people who will die in an american cruise missile attack will be the working, praying, little family people whose husbands do the cut work. war sucks, even in neat little bite-sized act of war like the one that might come any day now. and yet, and yet, how do we avoid this flagrant reality if we don't? those deciding in tehran right now whether to build a nuclear bomb are looking to see what the people in washington are doing. if we threaten the country, if it uses one weapon of mass destruction and it goes ahead and ignores us, what worth does our threat hold against that other country deciding whether to build th
. >> president obama spoke briefly to reporters shortly after kerry made those remarks. he was less emphatic, his message was similar. >> part of our obligation as a leader in the world is making sure that when you have a regime that is willing to use weapons that are prohibited by international norms on their own people, including children, that they are held to account. >> the team of u.n. weapons inspectors invest galting tigai attack have now left syria. pentagon officials tell nbc news that five guided missile destroyers are in the eastern mediterranean sea and nearly all of the targets have already been loaded into the warheads of some 200 tomahawk cruise missiles. a strike would be limited and tailored to syria's chemical weapons program. president f president obama were to order such a strike it will come without support from great britain. prime minister david cameron suffered a humiliate regbuk in parliament after they voted against military intervention. cameron says he will honor their wishes. france's leader says they are in, and he -- any american strike would also come without the
to support what may be about to be done and that is facing president obama right now. i think it's pretty clear from the words that we've heard, patty's assessment i concur with completely, we now have the u.s. saying they have no faith in the security council, condemning russia for blocking any efforts in the security council, the u.s. saying yes, there's the chemical weapons inquiry, those investigators out there, but we know what they're going to find so don't need to wait for them. i think it's pretty clear they are likely to go it alone. the chemical weapons inspectors will be leaving syria early on saturday morning. that perhaps and that's what observers here believe accounted be the last hurdle the administration has to wait for before possibly launching its open strikes. one other point worth raising, when the as he can tea of state john kerry was making all of those claims, many of those facts are very hard for us, whether we are nearby in syria or some distance away here in the u.n. to challenge, because we don't have access to that tort of intelligence information. he said when
to be an enjoyable switch for obama. now he can start a war that the next president will be stuck with. >> what about the rest of the world turning saying we've got wait for the u.n.? you've been through that before. >> to stop these terrorist killers. thank you. now watch this drive. >> i refuse to be roped in. ♪ >> good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching "the ed show" from minneapolis. i tweeted out this afternoon and i think we need to think about this. at least this is where i am. if we hit syria, it's an act of war. can we guarantee innocent people won't die? syria has not hit us. so it's all about chemical weapons. it's all about the moral response that we have to have to lead the world. if you are a skeptical american, you are not alone. but it looks like the united states has laid all the groundwork it can at this point for striking syria. and if i were a betting man, i'd be in vegas and i would put money on the fact that we are going to hit the syrians. the sell job if you're skeptical is on. both president obama and secretary of state john kerry addressed the nation on syria
weekend. "special report" is up next. >>> obama administration puts it in writing, laying out a case for military action against syria. this is "special report." good evening, i am doug mcelway in for bret baier. we finally got a look at some of the evidence this afternoon that president obama says puts the blame for last week's chemical attack on damascus squarely at the feet of the assad regime. many at home and abroad are unconvinced military action is about saving lives and not saving face for the president. we have fox team coverage. jennifer griffin at the pentagon has the latest on preparation for battle. james rosen at the state department with john kerry's big moment on the world stage. we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry and a president on a very hot and lonely seat. good evening, ed. >> reporter: that's right, good evening, doug. a president that came to power opposing war tonight is on the verge of unilateral military action. after days of the commander in chief laying low on syria and twice letting his secretary of state take the lead, president obama
has invited sharif to washington fo for talks with president obama. he says he still wants his government in the drone attacks on pakistani soil. >> and the light of today's discussion, we will continue this dialogue on how to stop this policy of drone attacks. nations is warning violence against afghanistan civilian population is increasing 23% over the same time last year. the figures were disclosed wednesday. >> the number of civilians killed or injured rose i 23% compared to the same time last year. deaths and 2533 injuries, total of 3852 civilian casualties. this marked an increase of 14% injuries and 28% in over the same time it in 2012. >> us-led nato occupation forces to do in its formal mission in afghanistan next year. and a report from the pentagon says the afghan military will "substantial training, advising and assistance -- including financial support goes quote long after the december 2014 withdrawal date thre. were heldal elections in zimbabwe wednesday in the latest challenge to longme president agave whose main challenger called the elections a huge farce and
and terrorism. this is a statement. i'll read it to you, congressman. president obama is advocating his responsibility as commander in chief and undermining the authority of future presidents. the president does not need congress to authorize a strike on syria. if assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians deserves a military response, and i believe it does, and if the president is seeking congressional approval, then he should call congress back into special session at the earliest date. the president doesn't need 535 members of congress to enforce his own red line. you totally disagree with peter king. tell our viewers quickly, because we're out of time, congressman rangel, why he's wrong and you're right. >> peter king i thought was on the right track when he said the president should call back the congress. but this whole idea that he doesn't need 535 -- at least i hope he's saying we need the majority. to an extent of what his belief is, it's 135th of the united states congress. so i respect him or anybody else who believes the president is authorized to attack another count
>>> i'm richelle carey. in the next 15 minutes president obama will announce his strategy regarding syria. >> that's right. we're standing by waiting for the president to come out in the rose garden to make remarks about his decision-making process on syria. >> u.n. chemical weapons inspectors brief leaders on their findings in syria just returning from damascus. >>> president obama is about to make a statement from the white house regarding syria. the president's address will take place as he decides what action to take against syria following last week's chemicals weapons attack against civilians in a damascus suburb. let's go to paul who joins us live from washington. paul, what can we expect the president to say? >> reporter: what we've learned is this is not an announcement that an attack on syria is imminent. it's important to emphasize he won't come out and announce an attack is imminent. what he is going to talk about is talk about his decision-making process, what's been going on about the intelligence, about his consultations with congress, perhaps, consultations with alli
. >> white house officials say that president obama has not decided how to respond, onlt that the president has decided the u.s. will respond. and according to pentagon officials that reaction could come within days. we begin in damascus. we're joined by a freelance reporter via telephone. we are not identifying her for her safety. >> reporter: it's a very mixed reaction, some people are angry at the syrian government for letting things come to this. one woman was saying why can't assad just step down already. it's clear he has become an excuse for the west to attack us. a lot of whether they are pro or anti-syrian government, they are very worried. i hear a lot of people referencing iraq. one man who supports the strike was saying that if they hit civilian targets like in iraq or against libya, then thousands of syrians could be at risk. you know, that's not something they want to deal with in addition to what they have already dealt with for two and a half years. and then there are those that say let's say we have the strike then what? >> what has the discussion been like in damascus betw
coming up in the hour. and little later on, we will ask would ask what you president obama in his news conference tomorrow. we're doing our town halls tomorrow. congress is in recess. they are doing town hall checking tweets, checking town halls. we mentioned the town hall last night, here he is taking a pie in the face for charity today. he is from nebraska. he says that joining local , -- rs for the farm bill covering that tomorrow, an event with sheldon whitehouse. run your calls coming up. we once take a look at the town hall that happened yesterday in illinois caller:. is a very general statement. are you for national security? i think there is no doubt that we need immigration reform. our current system is not working for employers or people who are trying to come here legally. it is not working for our agonist or he, the number one industry in my district. i have met with manufacturers and international groups in springfield, having a heart in getting visas to get into the country. then come our office deals with immigration as a federal issue on a daily basis. she wakes up ever
. then senator obama answered that question by saying, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. i pressed jay carney on that point today in the daily briefing and also, meanwhile, republicans like john mccain tonight are saying, if there is going to be military action, it cannot be a symbolic action, backing up the president's rhetoric about a red line, it's got to be serious action that decimates assad's military. take a listen. >> do you believe that exists right now? >> i believe it is a threat to the united states. i believe that absolutely allowing the use of chemical weapons on a significant scale to take place, without a response would present a significant challenge to -- a threat to the united states national security interests. >> if it's simply that we launch some cruise missiles and do that for three gayes and not have a significant effect on the momentum on the battlefield. it will have a -- an unhelpful effect. if we do it right, and
is it for this special report. >>> for the first time president obama says he will seek authorization from congress. he says the u.s. should take military action against the assad regime inside war didn't torn syria for using chemical weapons on its citizens but according to the president he will wait for congress to vote on the issue. the news coming fast tonight from around the globe as the world watches and waits for a positive u.s. strike. prez obama making his case for action in a statement today in the rose garden saying the deaths of innocent civilians at the hands of their government should not go unpunished. >> here's my question for every member of congress and every member of the global community. what message will we send if a dictator can gas hundreds of children to dmeth plain sight and pay no price? make no mistake, has implications beyond chemical war fair. if we won't enforce accountability in this heinous act what does it sap to other members who do this? the governments who would choose to build nuclear arms? the terrorists who would spread biological weapons? >> we should tell you,

know what we know, the question is what will we do let me empsoys. president obama and we in the united states we believe in the united nations and great respect for the brave inspector who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation. and as the security general moon said again and again, the un investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. that is not the mandate of the un investigation. they will only a whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the un can't tell us anything that we haven't shared with you this afternoon and we don't already know and because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism of any action of the un security council, the un cannot dwaflinnize the world to act the way it should. let me be clear, we'll talk to the congress and talking to our allies and most importantly talking to the american people and president obama will insure that the united states of america makes our decisions on our own time lines and based on our value asks in our interest. now we know that after a decade of conflict, the am
